The Lutheran won two awards of excellence from the Associated Church Press in a ceremony April 22 in Westlake, Texas.
The magazine won an award of excellence for “Assembly marks ELCA at 20” (September 2007) in the convention or meeting coverage category. The judge said the section “found the nearly perfect—sadly, perfect does not exist—equilibrium between solid design and interesting writing.”
The magazine also won an award of excellence for “The Annunciation—reconsidered” by Debra K. Farrington (March 2007) under theological reflection. The article “grasps very well a key dimension of this text often overlooked, and presents a clear, carefully portrayed, thoughtful reflection that rings true to life,” the judge said.
